I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Smythson of Bond St.

This was on my Christmas wish list. I NEED (needed) protection for my new iPhone 5s. I went high end because other cases/sleeves were either in the midrange $40-$60 or $100++ … and it was Etsy that sealed the deal. Prices were way too high for what you were getting, and who you would be getting it from. Sketchy-Etsy I say! Nothing replaces a trusted reputation from a 125 year old company. Ordering online from the UK is very civilized as well, never a worry. I’m still in awe, I ordered on the 18th (really, the 19th considering the time difference), and here it is at my front door on the 23rd before 6:00! Now, while I’m VAT exempt, and shipping was free (another thing; I scored free shipping with 2 days remaining on the deal, and depending on how you decipher their fees, if I’m considered USA, it’s £20, if I’m Rest of the World, it’s £30 … HUGE savings, woohoo!), but because it was delivered courier and not Canada Post, I’m not duty, tax free – was nipped for $34! Bloody buggers! It’s a thing of beauty, made in Italy … so mother ‘fn chuffed!
